Norwegian Players Hit Huge Yggdrasil Progressive Jackpot, Becomes Overnight Millionaire

One lucky slot player won nearly €5.2 million last week playing Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slot, Empire Fortune, on his mobile device.

Dreams really do come true - one lucky slot player won nearly €5.2 million last week playing Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slot, Empire Fortune.

The Norwegian player hit the jackpot while playing the slot on Betsson’s NorgesAutomaten mobile gaming site, of which he was a member for nine years. His is the latest in a series of recent big wins that have occurred while playing on a mobile device.

This is the new record for the popular jackpot, surpassing the old one - €3.3 million - by nearly €2 million. This is also a record win for NorgesAutomaten.

CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming, Fredrik Elmqvist, commented:

"We’re very excited to see one of our players hit our biggest ever jackpot...Jackpot titles are always popular, but what makes Yggdrasil’s progressive jackpot slots so successful is the engaging base game that keeps customers happy...Our market-leading slots, including Empire Fortune, are enjoyed by an ever-growing number of players and operators, and as we expand our customer base, it won’t be long before another lucky player hits the big one."

About Empire Fortune

Empire Fortune was launched in 2015 and it shares a jackpot pool with another Yggdrasil slot, Joker Millions. Combining a jackpot from two games allows it to reach higher and higher amounts. There are actually three separate jackpots up for grabs in Empire Fortune, which are available in the jackpot bonus game.

The bonus game is a 3D Wheel of Fortune, which offers a wide range of various wins, including coins, free spins, and mystery prizes. A fireworks feature sends rockets shooting to different wedges of the wheel, and players accumulate prizes depending on where the rockets land.
